Attention: Assignment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, City Editor, Environment Editor, Transportation Editor TORONTO/ONTARIO/REAL ESTATE--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 17, 2006) - Ivey alumni to host lunch session on demographic trends and their effect on real estate

October 16, 2006

Toronto, Ontario - On Wednesday October 25th The Richard Ivey School of Business Alumni Association will present best selling author David Foot as the speaker for their annual Real Estate Luncheon, sponsored by Colliers International. The topic of his address will be "Demographic Trends: The Impact on Real Estate and the Business Sector."

Foot, a professor at the University of Toronto and author of "Boom, Bust and Echo: How to Profit from the Coming Demographic Shift", is considered by many to be an authority on the economic impacts of demographic change and the resulting implications for both private and public policies. At this Luncheon he will explore the impact of demographics on real estate and the business sector.

Foot contends that demographics explains two thirds of everything - whether the subject is business planning, marketing, human resources, career planning, corporate organization, the stock market, housing, education, recreation, leisure and social and global trends. According to Foot, change can't be avoided, but it can be anticipated and managed. With an understanding of demographics, businesses, individuals and governments have a strong foundation upon which to build an understanding of the past and a vision for the future.

The Ivey 2006 Real Estate Luncheon sponsored by Colliers is open to members of the public. Additional information can be obtained from Miles McDonald mba, at 416.643.3494 or miles.mcdonald@colliers.com
